The DVD works fine after installing Windwos Vista on a new PC. But after running Windows Update the DVD disappear!

Hi there

first read the updates that windows downloads before installing it to your computer. do a custom install. there might be an issue with one of the windows update with your dvd. its a good thing that you have system restore.

fixya!

    well, you can search specifically which is not compatible update for your computer by clicking on each update and unchecking it if its not, it may take a long time though. so, alwas update using custom settings.

I need solution for this problem immediately I installed windows 7 in my PC. after that in My PC DVD RW is not working.


Was the Windows 7 installed from a clean slate or you upgraded from Vista to Windows 7? If you have upgraded from Vista to Windows 7, then this is definitely a driver problem. You can try to update the driver by going to Device Manager, check if the DVD drive is listed. Pull down the drop down list, and right click on the devices listed under DVD/CD-ROM Drives and choose Update Driver Software.
If the DVD drive came with a software bundle (e.g. Nero Burning Application) Try reinstalling these application under Windows 7 Environment.

My asus crw 5224a is inoperble driver update cant


Because you are trying to install the wrong driver.
Go do windows update and windows will install the correct driver for you, this will work on windows xp, vista and windows 7 only, you did no state your OS.
Hope this helps

Itunes knocks out DVD/CD driver whenever I update Itunes.


Solution 1

Check with your manufacturer to see if there are updated software drivers for your optical drive. For more information about updating the firmware of your CD or DVD drive,

Solution 2

Launch Windows Explorer.
Navigate to C:\Windows\system32\drivers\.
Check to see if either of the following 2 files are present. These files from a third-party software vendor are not supported by Windows Vista and can cause driver conflicts with optical drives:
afs.sys
afs2k.sys
If either of the files in Step 3 are present, move them out of the system32 folder. You should keep these files stored somewhere on your hard drive, as some of your older peripherals may require them. If you find that they are required in the future to use a device, you may move them back into the system32 folder temporarily.
Reboot Windows Vista.

Solution 3

Quit iTunes.
Manually remove the GEAR driver software using the steps found here.
Remove any stand alone GEAR software installers from the Programs and Features control panel, if present.
Install the updated GEAR driver.

I have a inspirion 5150 and i try to update windows. When I do the cd rom disappears from my computer and in my device manager says there is a conflict. Then I did a restore and it came back, but if i do...


Yes you can do a customize update whenever windows tell you there is a update available you should uncheck driver updates.This should prevent any driver update which may cause a conflict.
good luck

Need Vista driver for external DVD writer of LG model GSA-5169D


There aren't any such drivers.  The drive control protocols are standardized.  Just do Windows Update a few times and make sure the thing's connected when you restart storage subsystems (pretty much a reboot; though installing Nero will of course get things going if you don't love Vista built-in tools.)

How to Install Sony DRU-710A DVD-RW


Hi there,

Cd/dvd drives don't actually require a driver to run. They use "class filter drivers" which are supplied by a burning program like Nero or NTI. These "class filter drivers" only add functionality to the drive. Windows just uses a generic driver "MSCDEX" to run them.

A couple of things to try:

Uninstall the drive. Open Device Manager, click on the + sign next to CD/DVD ROM drives, right click on the drive and select uninstall. Exit and restart your system. When windows loads, it will recognise a hardware change, and will ask if you want to install. Before you click anything, insert the disc that came with the drive (if you have one). This should then install, if not, let windows search. If windows can't find anything, select "I will choose the driver manually" and look for your drive in the list.

Another thing to do, is download the most current Chipset drivers for your motherboard (which I would recommend anyway, even if the above worked).

Update the Firmware version and the internal drivers for your drive. These can be found here: http://sony.storagesupport.com/product/112#drivers

Also, update windows to the latest Service Pack (SP3 for XP and SP1 for Vista) if you haven't got them already.

If you have Vista, did you recently update to SP1 via Windows Update? If the answer is yes, please let me know.

Hope these solve your problem

Regards,
Tim

My problem is that my system does'nt show any dvd drive in Lap


I had the same problem, it occurred right after windows installed sp2 and my laptop showed no dvd player with any program, I restored my laptop to the previous day before the update and it worked fine again, after that I just let windows update by itself and it has been a week and everything is fine, also in device manager open the dvd + sign and right click your dvd and click update drivers, if that does not work, right click your dvd, and then click delete, and then reboot your computer, laptop whatever and the computer will automatically recognize the player on startup and it will install again and hopefully that will get your drivers updated, do not worry about deleting the dvd player, it will reinstall all by itself, just have to reboot..thanks
